Of these works we cannot speak
Approaching something with the ambition to explain it can be precarious. At every attempt one finds oneself defenceless against a linguistic-philosophical query, regarding of the possibility to create a representation of the impossible and unnameable in order to render the unintelligible intelligible.
SYMMETRY is a series of drawings, an object and three publications of a future where a life without work-work is possible and there is nothing to regret.
Two of the publications reside from the process up until the realization of the exhibition, they co-exist without no specific inter-mutual order. CITY is a polyglot exercise and KATT is a correspondence between the artist and Stian Gabrielsen.
The third book is developed in collaboration between Johan Hjerpe and Linus Elmes. Through grammar, rhetoric and polemics it ends up in SYMMETRY.
